Dohwan Nam, Ph.D.

  • Assistant Scientist, University of Wisconsin-Madison

  • Co-Founder, ChloBis Water, Inc. 

Hello! My name is Dohwan Nam, and I am a staff scientist at

the University of Wisconsin-Madison and also a Co-Founder of ChloBis Water, Inc.

I received my Ph.D. in Materials Science and Engineering

from Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST)

in South Korea.

My research interests are in the general area of electrochemistry and include the development of materials and electrochemical systems for energy storage, biomass conversion, and desalination technologies.
